The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1988

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 11TH 1988:

  1. “Baby I Love Your Way / Freebird” – Will To Power
  2. “When It’s Love” – Van Halen
  3. “Perfect World” – Huey Lewis And The News
  4. “The Locomotion” – Kylie Minogue
  5. “Got To Be Certain” – Kylie Minogue

It’s fun to look back at my weekly hit music charts from all of those years ago. Back before personal computers, smart phones, and social media we had paper, pen, and pencil. That’s how I used to create, compile, and record my charts. I managed to preserve those paper charts pretty nicely over the past 30 years via durable 3-ring notebooks.

Check this out:


There it is – the original Top 10 of my Top 40 via paper, pen, and pencil. Menudo. LOL. You like my sense of humor up there ?  “NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK VERSION”. Incidentally my handwriting has deteriorated over the past 30 years. I wish I wrote that nicely today. At least I can type from 75 to 100 WPM.

It’s halftime. I’ll be back on Sunday and Monday with my remaining two blogs for this weekend. Enjoy your Saturday. Make memories of a lifetime, and protect them so that you can reflect back on them 30 years from now !
